My name is Claire Burton and I am an 8th grader at Dobie Jr. High. My first week of school was very stressful because I had a completely new schedule and on top of that 8th grade volleyball tryouts. My new schedule was kind of confusing because I had to go to parts of the school that I didn’t know existed.
A new schedule can be bad but I kind of enjoy mine now because we have to use a locker this year so no back packs.I miss my backpack! I like my schedule because I have Yearbook class first, Social Studies second, Art third, and all of those are up stairs but for fourth period. I have to go down stares so I drop by my locker and grab all the stuff ill need for the rest of the day, then comes lunch.
After lunch I go to Cougar Time which is kind of like free period. I don’t really understand Cougar Time, but I can work on things I didn’t finish in class. Then it’s off to science, and then math. After math I have my last class Girls Athletics.
At the very end of my day I had volley ball tryouts and I have to say I was so nervous for tryouts but I wasn’t as nervous as I was last year. My schedule was like this from Tuesday through Thursday. After our last day of tryouts on Thursday we had to wait outside for our coaches to post the list. I MADE IT! I was so excited that I had made the team and now I am ready for practice every day and games every Thursday.
